post #3181 of 3922
Im looking into getting some right angle adaptors for this tv so the wires aren't showing. Is there anything I have to look out for? Is there the same difference as normal HDMI cables like standard speed and high speed?

Or should I just buy cables with the right angle built in?

It would be great to hear if anyone has had issues using either of these on this TV.

Thanks

Is anybody else bothered by the lack of fast forward or rewind capability when playing your media files through Plex or LG DLNA client? I don't see any way to do this. It only has play, pause, and stop, which kind of makes it very user unfriendly.

Huh? I have fast forward and rewind......I guess it's more like step forward, but it works for my purposes.

Haven't tried those vehicles but the YouTube App has virtually no fast forward, maybe skips ahead 10 seconds at a time. Annoying. Playing media files via USB all works fine.

Set up replacement 7600 last night and was floored. It was a February 2012 build I could tell it had been in the Best Buy warehouse for some the box looked like it had been stored in a chimney. After set-up and ran the updates all missing features from original 7600 were accounted.
I hooked up PS3 did a quick calibration with my WOW disc, ran my screen purity slide (black) to test for edge bleed. I was surprised with local dimming off there almost zero bleed and on "low" there was none and improve black levels. I purchased the geek squad plan to cover all bases and am on to enjoy my display. I can now finish Tomb Raider and Borderlands 2 before Bioshock:infinite.

That doesn't make sense to me. How does restarting a cable box affect judder? Judder effects are formed within the TV and are based upon pulldown, and are most evident during slow panning scenes.

Did you have some kind of jumping around instead? Or an odd motion blur?
post #3187 of 3922
No you're right. I used the wrong term. Yea it was a jumping motion.

I'm guessing the Amazon app is going to be released generally at sometime soon. I may like it even better than on the ROKU. And Amazon has moved some great programs to the free PRIME area, like Justified, including the Pilot episode I had not seen before. Very nice interface and smooth video. I don't know what the hold-up is to release it to everyone.

So did the firmware updates fix the flashlighting issues? This TV is now on clearance at Amazon, and I am considering it and the LM8600. Thanks!

I had an email exchange with LG just about 2 weeks ago regarding the Amazon app...since the reps had been saying that it would be coming by March. It was a quick reply that they gave me...but they did confirm that the firmware update was expected this month (see the email on pg. 102 of this thread). I have been anxiously waiting as I hate to watch my Prime videos through the Wii. I had been hoping that the firmware that was released on the Engineering Mode (04.50.01as reported by Caloyzki) would be the one to have it...and have been waiting for general release.

One quirk I just saw with the latest update. When assigning inputs, there is no symbol anymore for some of the choices, like Blu-Ray or VCR.

I'm wondering if that smooth video you're seeing isn't always reliable given other things that the TV might decide to do. Not sure on that. But I do know that on my old laptop, I can only get it to work by turning off the antivirus entirely.

In my case this almost certainly has to do with the HD encryption required for DRM/anti-piracy, because streaming all by itself is a piece of cake for a processor.

This is kinda strange. So I've had the LM7600 for just over a month, limited but visible flash lighting in the upper right corner. Last night I watched some TV for a bit and then played some PS3.

About half an hour into my TV watching, I noticed my flash lighting was completely gone. No changes to any setting, no change in ambient light, same source, etc. Nothing changed aside from the flash light going away.

I turned the lights off and waited for a dark image to occur. Still no visible flash lighting. It's as if it's just totally disappeared. I have roughly 75 hours logged on the set.

My flash lighting seems to have disappeared too. I have changed some settings but not that much. I am loving my LM 7600. I have the purity test from WOW on black and nothing. Very happy to say the least. By the way I love the Disney Wow disk. Will post photos of setup soon. Almost most done with hookups.

I have to pick me up one of those WOW disks. I actually found that using the Vivid setting for my cable tv input and scaling the brightness/backlight down fair a bit actually looks really good. Besides, it's just TV so accurate colors and all of that don't mean much to me. I would like to get some accurate settings for Blu Ray movies and my PS3/360 though. I've tried the CNET settings and the picture just looks incredibly dull and lifeless to me, lacking sharpness and things like that.

I would use CNET's basic settings as starting point and look around this forum and a few sites and mix and match to find your perfect settings (see below). I would recommend WOW to anyone that wants to have a comprehensive explanation of how-to and why calibration helps get the most out of your display. In most cases a calibrated set will have a "dull" look because colors are adjusted to be accurate not over saturated.
You have to like the way your set looks, so adjust until it looks right to you. Here are a few links:

Picture is always based on taste in the end. That said, those CNET settings are spot on for a very natural look. Faces should look as natural as possible. Did you make all the settings CNET has? I can tell you, WOW is not going to be much different than the CNET settings, and worse if you zero out the settings you made. WOW can make the saturation and color balance correct, but many subtle changes that a pro would make are included in the CNET settings. If WOW did have very different settings one would have to be incorrect.
You would be better to not get WOW if CNET is not to your liking, and simply use the CNET settings and then change the saturation or hue to your taste. WOW is simply going to confirm the CNET settings are just about right with any real change being in brightness or contrast. Even then it won't be that great of difference. Why buy WOW then disregard what it says is correct, just do that now with the CNET settings.
WOW works for many of us in conjunction with CNET because all we want to do is tweak it a little based on our room the TV is in, not drastically change it.

So I think I just discovered something interesting.

I use this TV mostly for PC games and movies and with Xbox and ps3. I had all of my inputs labeled as PC because I wanted 0 lag for gaming. But then I thought I read somewhere in this thread that the newest update 4.31.43 made it so the gaming input had 0 lag as well. I also always disliked the fact that the PC input would not allow you to get into the color management menu or to use true motion settings.

So today I tried changing my computer from the PC input type to the gaming input type. I was able to go into the color management settings and set them up with the CNET settings and I was able to use the tru motion settings as well, but I noticed there was lag which I didn't like. This forced me to go back to the PC input label.

The thing is that I'm pretty sure all of the color management settings that I adjusted stayed adjusted even when I went back to the PC input. It might just be in my head but it looks a lot better than it did before.

If I am not mistaken you can do white balance and color management are available in (input) PC and Gaming. I believe it now allows for local dimming adjustment.

For me color management is not available in PC input.

Save yourself some money and go with the 8600. In my humble opinion.

WOW was $17 last I looked. I think he should try it regardless.

BTW, does LG have a way of storing several settings away in a human-readable file? XML or something, or is that asking for something a little too sensible? And then allowing a person to quickly choose between them?
